Short biography
Ed(ward) Dee spent 20 years on the NYPD walking the streets of the South Bronx before retiring as a lieutenant with a "suitcase full of stories" he had to write, including his four novels: 14 Peck Slip, Bronx Angel, Little Boy Blue and Nightbird. Ed was born in Yonkers, N.Y. Feb. 3, 1940. He graduated from Sacred Heart High School, then served two years in the U.S. Army. In 1962 he joined the NYPD and spent nine years in uniform in South Bronx precincts; the last 11 years of his career he supervised detectives in the Organized Crime Control Bureau. While working the streets he earned a BA from Fordham University.

Ed retired from the NYPD as a lieutenant. Then, answering a life-long desire to write, he left Fordham School of Law and earned a MFA in Creative Writing from Arizona State University.

His first novel, 14 Peck Slip, which was also his master's thesis, was named a Notable Book of The Year in 1994 by the New York Times. Bronx Angel ('95), Little Boy Blue ('97) and Nightbird ('99) followed.

His latest book, The Con Man's Daughter, was released in fall 2003. Order now

Ed has two daughters and four grandchildren. He lives in Delaware with his wife, Nancy.
